Thames Chase & the London Urban Forest Partnership

Thames Chase work with the London Urban Forest Partnership to increase London's canopy cover by 10% by 2050

In 2020, Thames Chase joined with the London Urban Forest Partnership,  a network of organisations that collaborate to protect, manage and enhance the capital's trees and woodlands. The partnership share information and data, help inform tree related programmes in London and promote the benefits of the city's urban forest. 

London’s population continues to grow, reaching 8.8 million in 2017. It is important that we continue to plant trees and improve London’s green spaces. The aim of the Mayor is to increase tree canopy cover in London by 10 per cent of current levels by 2050, to 23 per cent.

The Partnership developed a London Urban Forest Plan which was published in November 2020 (see download on the right). This sets out the goals and priority actions needed to protect, manage and expand the capital’s urban forest. The Partnership coordinate delivery of the plan, collaborating with others responsible for the stewardship of London’s urban forest and the wider urban forest community.
